Overwatered Rubber Plant

[email protected] added on June 28, 2011 | Answered

I received a rubber plant in September. It was overwatered and I have tried to let it dry out so that it will perk up. Doesn't seem to be working. Do I need to re-pot it? Also, we live at 10, 000 feet, do rubber trees dislike the altitude?
